Bible Reading and Prayer
for Tuesday 19th May 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down towards your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness;
for you have exalted your name and your word
On the day I called, you answered me,
you increased my strength of soul.
All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord,
for they have heard the words of your mouth.
They shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
for great is the glory of the Lord.
For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly;
but the haughty he perceives from far away.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve me against the wrath of my enemies;
you stretch out your hand,
and your right hand delivers me.
The Lord will fulfil his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O Lord, endures for ever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands.

St Dunstan’s day
Almighty God, who raised up Dunstan to be a true shepherd of the lock, a restorer of monastic life and a faithful counsellor to those in authority, give to all pastors the same gifts of your Holy Spirit that they may be true servants of Christ and all his people, through Jesus Christ, your son our Lord. Amen.
